Quite a pretty issue, with a beautiful, beautiful front cover by Lora Avedian, illustration by Laura Skilbeck (this is a page by itself which slots into the front cover of the fanzine), Fuchsia Macaree and Jennifer Bell and photography by Adam Faulkner.
There is also poetry by Andrew Beswick.
There is an article on the proposed elected mayor for Manchester by Andrew Bowman and a report on the EDL march in Piccadilly Gardens by Adam Faulkner.
I wrote about Manchester's forgotten palaces (see previous posts). I also made my first attempt at illustration. I like the pictures better than the article, which didn't turn out quite as I hoped.
Emily McPhillips wrote a charming short story.
There are also listings and things to make and do:
a sewing pattern by Rebecca Willmott plus recipes by Rebecca and Rosa Martyn.
The editorial contains a mini-appreciation of the poet Carol Batton, who I will probably write more about later.
There will also be paper copies around town. It is free.
I am looking for contributors for December's Issue. I would be particularly interested in receiving Christmas/ seasonal recipe ideas!
